Briefly: Colombian rebel camps bombed, 6 bodies recovered
BOGOTA — Colombian military authorities said they recovered six bodies of FARC rebels slain in an air raid on three guerrilla camps in a southwestern jungle region.
The regional army commander told The Associated Press that at least 20 Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) fighters were killed in the pre-dawn attack Sunday near the town of Ricuarte in Narino state.
Gen. Jorge Alberto Segura said 60 rebels were in the three camps, which were located with the help of local residents.
The attack comes amid peace talks in Cuba between the government and Colombia’s main leftist rebel band that began Nov. 19.
U.N. court hears sea border dispute
THE HAGUE — The Peruvian government is asking the U.N.’s highest court to set a maritime border between Peru and Chile in a case that will carve up control over the rich seas off the two Andean neighbors’ Pacific coasts.
Chile insists the border between the two countries was clearly set in treaties signed in 1952 and 1954.
Peru lawyer Alain Pellet told the court Monday there is a “flagrant lack of any maritime delimitation” between the two countries and that Chile’s proposed border “radically cuts off Peru’s access to the high seas.”
